Ross Petty Productions presents the premiere of THE WIZARD OF OZ- yhe wickedly wacky family musical starring Dan Chameroy, Jessica Holmes, Elicia MacKenzieYvan Pedneault and Ross Petty

"Toto, I don't think we're in Kansas anymore." Truer words have never been spoken, especially when referring to the annual Ross Petty Holiday Family Musical!

Follow the yellow brick road to the Elgin Theatre this season and discover Ross Petty Productions' world premiere of THE WIZARD OF OZ, an original Petty production and 16th consecutive holiday show, starring Dan Chameroy, Jessica Holmes, Elicia MacKenzie, Yvan Pedneault and Ross Petty.

Dorothy, played by Elicia MacKenzie in her panto debut, made a smooth transition from an innocent novitiate in The Sound Of Music to a rock and roll chick in Rock Of Ages, and now segues seamlessly into an adventure-seeking city girl from Toronto who finds herself transported, via snow storm, to a wickedly wacky new world. Accompanied by her dog Toto and Aunt Plumbum-yes Dan Chameroy returns to the Panto for the third time to reprise the role of the man-hungry Plumbum von Botox-Dorothy is helped along the way by Splenda the Good Witch, played by the lusciously loopy Jessica Holmes of Royal Canadian Air Farce fame.

The Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion and the Scarecrow, the funniest trio since Ford, Ford and Hudak, join Dorothy on her quest to find the Wizard of Oz, because "there's no place like home." Yvan Pedneault, recent star of We Will Rock You and Rock Of Ages is a magically challenged Tin Man, Stratford's Steve Ross is the Cowardly Lion, the Shaw Festival's Kyle Blair portrays the Scarecrow, and fan-favourite Eddie Glen will appear as The Wizard Of Oz himself!

A Petty panto is no such thing without Ross Petty who will once again trod the boards as the force of farcical evil, the Wicked Witch of the West. This winter, somewhere over the rainbow-blame global warming-fractured fairy tales will reign!
